I don’t know aboute everyone here, but I love hearing others’ proposal stories! I was in the mall this morning doing some running around and noticed a lot of men in Jewellery stores! Should make for a fun few days on weddingbee 🙂

Well, it wasn’t quite a Valentine’s day proposal, but my boyfriend proposed yesterday(!!!) on my birthday during our trip down to Florida. We went to the botanical gardens (my favorite) in the afternoon. He had been carrying around my birthday card all day, but wouldn’t let me open it! Finally under a beatiful pavillion on the bayfront, he said I could open my card. It said “happy birthday, but I have a bigger surprise for you,” and when I looked up he was on one knee with a ring! I was so happy!!! I wanted to call my parents immediately, of course, but he said I should wait until we got back to the condo. When we walked in the door, my parents and his mom were all waiting for us with champagne! Apparently everyone was in on the surprise except for me 🙂 Definitely a birthday I’ll never forget!

I’ll tell my story!!! My FI and I got engaged Valentines Day 2009. I was about 5 months preggars with our 2nd child. I was extremely sick from the pregnancy and not in a good mood at all. He took our oldest child and said they were going to get food. He came back really late and I was extremely irritated. My son came running in with a giant bunch of roses and said will “you marry my daddy!!!” He was only 2.5 at the time, so I was like “what? That’s a really good sentence” LOL. My FI came in the door and got on one knee, kissed my belly, and asked me to be his wife. I was overwhelmed and sooo sick, so I hurred to say yes before I got sick to my stomach, LOL.
I was happy, it was a good day, long tome coming, no doubt just not expected at the time. Now our wedding is in 3 months!!!
